Swallowing Difficulties (dysphagia)

Food sticking in throat

This can be due to a narrowing or a pouch at the top of the oesophagus or due to a nerve problem such as a stroke.
This symptom is never normal and you should contact us urgently for an assessment.

Food sticking in the chest

This is never normal and could represent a narrowing in the food pipe, a problem with the muscles pushing the food down or a cancer in the oesophagus.
